Holy Mass Schedule and other information
HOLY MASS SCHEDULES DIFFER
FOR EASTER, CHRISTMAS AND HOLY DAYS.
PLEASE CALL THE PARISH OFFICE
(843-785-2895). THANK YOU!
WELCOME EVERYONE -
Our Visitors on Vacation, "Snowbirds", Newcomers,
we are glad to have you here to visit our Church & to PRAY with us!
FASTING REGULATIONS: Catholics between the ages of 18 and 60 are obliged to Fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. One full meal is allowed. Two lesser meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one’s needs, but together they should not equal another full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted. It should also be pointed out that water is the drink of the day (not soda, etc) and that desserts would be un-necessary (even at the “full meal”).
ABSTINENCE REGULATIONS: ASH WEDNESDAY, ALL FRIDAYS of Lent and GOOD FRIDAY are days of Abstinence. Meats should not be taken at any meal. The law of abstinence binds all Catholics who are 15 years old and older. It should be noted here that young children, while not obliged to abstain from eating meat, could most certainly participate in this Lenten observance. Children are usually happy to eat Peanut Butter and Jelly or Grilled Cheese and the younger we teach them this Lenten Discipline the better.
ADDITIONAL OBSERVATIONS: In reference to these penitential days, Canon Law states: “On these days (of Penance), the faithful are in a special manner to devote themselves to prayer, to engage in works of piety and charity, to deny themselves, by fulfilling their obligations more faithfully and especially by observing the fast and abstinence…”
FRIDAYS during Lent
STATIONS of the CROSS at 5:30pm in ENGLISH
MEATLESS SOUP SUPPERS at 6pm in the Parish Hall
STATIONS of the CROSS in SPANISH at 7:00pm
Please note: The Stations of the Cross devotion may be prayed at anytime, in Church or outside at the Stations of the Cross walkway, located next to the Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine.

In charity, please be sensitive to each other
and provide a good example.
Please ARRIVE ON TIME, even 15 minutes before,
for the celebration of HOLY MASS - AND -
PLEASE REMAIN until HOLY MASS has ended,
which is when the CELEBRANT processes from church.
(When was the last time you left a movie
before the story was finished?
PLEASE take time to give thanks to GOD
for the GLORIOUS GIFT of JESUS in HOLY EUCHARIST.)
Please dress appropriately and modestly –
Our Lord deserves your respect.
Please enter and exit the church QUIETLY
